Easy Avocado Chickpea Salad

(serves 2-3)


●      1 x 14 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

●      1 medium ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and mashed

●      1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

●      Juice of 1 medium lemon juice

●      Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

●      Optional: 5 oz of canned tuna or chicken in water, drained

●      Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed avocado with the lemon juice. Stir in the chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, and tuna if using. Toss in the cilantro. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and black pepper. Eat and enjoy!


Make-Ahead Tip: You can prep the chickpeas (or tuna), tomatoes, and cilantro in advance. Just add the avocado and lemon juice when you're ready to eat. This will keep 2-3 days in the fridge.
